Prince-Approved Midnight Purple Nintendo 3DS Ships May 20


The Nintendo 3DS gets its fifth U.S. color scheme makeover when the Midnight Purple system ships later this month. Too bad Purple Rain is off limits as I think that would have sold it even better. Either way, I’m sure Prince, or The Artist Formerly Known as Prince, or the symbol of love, or whatever he’s calling himself these days, would very much approve of the new color option.

Nintendo’s Midnight Purple 3DS joins the Cosmo Black, Aqua Blue, Flame Red and Pearl Pink models on store shelves May 20th for $169.99. Hey, that’s the same day Mario Tennis Open launches. Clever Nintendo!
